Adama Traore called up for Spain national team

Wolves winger Adama Traore has been called up for Spain’s national team squad ahead of next month’s UEFA Nations League fixtures against Germany and Ukraine. 

The 24-year-old was initially called up for the Spanish team in November last year, and could have possibly made his international debut against Malta or Romania in the Euro 2020 qualifiers, but was forced to withdraw due to injury.

Born in Spain, Traore has represented the Spanish side several at youth levels but is eligible to play for Mali, the country of his parents. 

And in January, he said he was still undecided about his international future but stated that “if Spain come again I will be in a position to go and train with Spain.”

Luis Enrique, the Spain manager, said of Traore: “In these last two seasons in England he has improved a lot.”

“He is hungry and eager to continue improving. He can bring us many things.”

This means that Traore could make his senior national team debut for Spain when they face Germany on September 3 or against Ukraine on September 6.

Traore scored six goals and recorded 12 assists in 54 appearances for Wolves in all competitions this season, and was an influential figure as they finished 7th on the table with 59 points – their highest tally in the Premier League, and making it to the Europa League quarterfinals before eventually getting knockout out by tournament specialists Sevilla.

Also making the latest Spain call-up list is Barcelona winger Ansu Fati. 

The 17-year-old was born in Guinea-Bissau but moved to Spain the age of six with his parents, and had a stellar breakthrough season with the Catalan club after making his debut in August 2019, scoring eight goals in 33 appearances. 

Fati was granted Spanish citizenship in September last year and has already featured for the Spain U-21 team.
